(ECNS) -- Iranian media declared President Ebrahim Raisi dead on Monday after his helicopter crashed in a mountainous northwestern region, but there has not yet been any official confirmation, AFP reported.

"The president of the Islamic Republic of Iran, Ayatollah Ebrahim Raisi, had an accident while serving and performing his duty for the people of Iran and was martyred," AFP cited Iran's Mehr agency as saying.

The helicopter crashed on Sunday and was carrying Raisi, Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollhian and others.

"We are closely following the situation and will provide all necessary support and assistance for Iran's rescue efforts," a Foreign Ministry spokesperson said on early Monday.
